I want to take the opportunity to express what a great learning experience I received at the Umpire Placement Course the last two years. John and his entire staff were very professional, but more importantly very approachable when it came to class instruction. I was impressed by their on-field abilities to teach and communicate in a clear and understanding way. Instruction was easy to follow and learn. The leadership techniques are set up for anyone to learn and advance at their own pace. UPC uses all state-of-the-art resources, like Trackman, to help their students receive better opportunities and quality job placements. I would highly recommend UPC for anyone looking to advance their umpiring career.

The Umpire Placement Course has played a crucial role in my professional growth as an umpire. I cannot stress enough how valuable the instruction I received during this course has been. The course boasts a remarkable team of instructors who are genuinely invested in your success. They go above and beyond to provide you with the knowledge and guidance you need to thrive in your umpiring career.

 

One aspect of the course that stands out is the comprehensive breakdown of the three-umpire system. The instructors break it down into manageable chunks in the classroom, ensuring that we understand each component fully. Then, in the afternoons, we take to the field to put our learnings into practice. This hands-on approach maximizes our understanding and allows us to develop essential skills efficiently.

 

The opportunities that have come my way after attending this course have been nothing short of amazing. The experiences I have had in various leagues have played a pivotal role in advancing my career in the college ranks. The knowledge and expertise I gained from the Umpire Placement Course have undoubtedly contributed to my promotions.

After attending the Wendelstedt Umpire School in January of 2023, I attended the Umpire Placement Course. UPC is outstanding in every way. I honestly enjoyed it more than Wendelstedt. You are able to get real world 3-Umpire system game experience. If you're new to the 3-umpire system, and/or NCAA Baseball, I suggest you study up before attending. The instructors provide personal attention, and care that you absorb what is taught in the curriculum. UPC Director John White is a straight shooter. He will tell you where you stand, with no games. If you want to umpire college baseball, high school, or in a summer collegiate league, you have to attend this course, period. I got a West Coast League position this past season, and it was a blast.

The training I received at the Umpire Placement Course was nothing short of professional, and incredibly helpful to me in my development as an umpire. I am confident that the training I received at the Umpire Placement Course has better prepared me for any level of baseball I choose to umpire in the future. The course focuses on the three man system and the instructors work one on one with the students to ensure they understand any questions and concepts of that system, and umpiring in general.

As a 2019 graduate of the Wendelstedt Umpire School, I was a little disappointed I did not get a job in professional baseball. Once I heard about UPC and the opportunities they were providing, I knew that was what I was going to pursue. UPC is a great camp with very good instruction, both in the classroom and on the field.If you are interested in working high-level college summer baseball, this camp and it's staff are going to get you prepared to do so!
